Staff member
Aleyant has released Version 2.0 of PrintJobManager, featuring “Scheduling Simplified to facilitate more intelligent production planning”. According to Aleyant, “Based on customer feedback & industry trends, continued functionality continues to be added to PrintJobManager”.

With Version 2.0, job information can be viewed on the department or resource level, as a basis for intelligent production planning. Each view shows job details, including:
  • Due date,
  • Estimated production time,
  • Customer information, and
  • Priority.
In addition, Version 2.0 also features an additional integration point with Pressero Web2Print solution. Pressero can now be mapped to a custom field, allowing information such as department code, billing code or unique, customer specific metadata to be visible in the Job Ticket & the Job Lists. Custom fields can also be designated as internal or external, allowing better control over shop and customer information.

Color Optimized?

Color is in demand in all types of documents, making color management a critical part of Digital Printing 5.0. Managing color on one device/press can be an easy task with the correct tools and processes. But managing color to ensure printed pages are consistent and repeatable across the different substrates and color gamuts of toner and inkjet can be a much bigger challenge. Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
